‘Ano‘ai ke aloha!

Welcome to the Ka‘iwakīloumoku Virtual Archive – a multi-media haven for online cultural learning. Here you’ll find videos, snapshots, articles, recipes, interviews, profiles of Hawaiian elders, and more.

This web site is the virtual counterpart of the long-awaited Ka‘iwakīloumoku Hawaiian Cultural Center at Kamehameha Schools Kapālama in Honolulu, Hawai‘i.

Ka‘iwakīloumoku means “the ‘iwa bird that hooks the islands together,” a traditional reference to our great and revered warrior-king, Kamehameha ‘Ekahi. It is a name that recalls Kamehameha’s efforts to unite the Hawaiian Islands some 200 years ago. It is also a reflection of Nā Kānaka Maoli – Native Hawaiians – coming together to revitalize Hawaiian language and culture to ensure a vibrant Hawaiian society in the 21st century.

All are invited to enter and have enriching experiences. During your visit, we greatly appreciate your consideration and respect for the information, images and perspectives found on this site – they are housed here because this is their home. Mahalo a nui loa.

Nou nō ka hale – e komo mai!
